30 Sep Book review: Flirting in Florence (Summer Flings #6) by Aimee Duffy
Part 6 of Summer Flings – a fun, flirty and laugh out loud rom com series of short stories.
Instead of hitting the designer shops with her friends, Ciara’s all about proving Florence can be enjoyed on a budget – and she isn’t talking about the sexy Italians Elle and Gem pick up for the duration!
One-on-one with Zack is getting too intense so she plans a grape-squishing trip to a vineyard hoping to leave her problems back in the city. Of course her doomed affair is the least of her worries when her friendship with his cousin is on the line.
The ideal summer treat for those relaxing days soaking up the sun!
‘Flirting in Florence’ is the sixth installment in the #Summer Flings series and as we’re approaching the end of the series things are certainly starting to get more dramatic. Unlike the previous parts, this one has a more serious note and I actually like it. It can be all roses in life, so it was really refreshing to see that these characters go through a rough time, not just partying. The issues Ciara has with her mother are a great touch, however they’re repeated many times and reading about them in this installment too felt a bit overwhelming. However, it helps us complete the image of Ciara, which is a completely different one to that we’ve seen at the beginning in this series.
There’s some trouble in paradise too, and some things between Zack and Cia happen, but they’d be considered as spoiler so I’m not gonna include them in my review.
It’s enjoyable read, just like the previous ones, but definitely more serious and I can say I really like how Ms Duffy’s style changed throughout the series, becoming more unique and mature. The best is yet to come though, according to me, in the last installment which is my favorite part of this series. Bring on Dublin!
My rating: 7/10
